Despite its relatively small size, occupying 1% of the world's landmass, Colombia boasts 19% of the world's species of birds (more than North America and Europe combined). Colombia is the second most biologically diverse country on Earth, home to about 1,900 species of birds, 3,000 species of orchids, and 3,500 species of butterflies. Much of this diversity is due to Colombia’s topography, which includes three Andean ranges and the valleys between them, a large portion of the Amazon Basin, and extensive coastal habitat (Colombia is the only South American country with borders on both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans). The result is an incredible variety of ecosystems—from rich tropical rainforests, to dry tropical forests, to the cloud forests of the Andean cordilleras, to the high-altitude paramos, to the open savannas of the east and the coastal deserts of the Caribbean.
